RIEDELL Dart Purple
The RIEDELL Dart is a economic version of the famous R3 with a softer vinyl boot. The well known low cut design allows you to have enough flex and the powerstrap keeps your feet heel in the right position.
The POWERDYNE Thrust plate with alu trucks is light and strong and perfect for the entry into Roller Derby. RADAR 62mm wheels with 93A gives you also a good performance for the first steps into our sport. The wheels are only recommend for indoor floors.
RDH Recommendation: A very good upgrade for the Dart? Take some softer and better cushions (POWERDYNE or SURE-GRIP) for your plates. They're inexpensive, easy to install, and they provide a very progressive and confidence-inspiring feel to your roller skates. They're available in multiple hardnesses to suit your exact needs. Another good upgrade are better and bigger toe stops, like GUMBALLS or SURE-GRIP RX toe stops.
Paul Riedell and his wife Sophie founded Riedell Shoes Inc. in Red Wing, Minnesota, USA more than 60 years ago with one goal in mind – to produce and offer only the finest quality skates available in the market. Today RIEDELL is the market leader in roller skates!

For beginners of our sport it's not quite easy to decide which size will fit for your feet. Here we will show how to choose the correct size based on your real foot length.
First of all you should measure your feet:
Therefore put on some socks you would also wear while skating. Then press your heel against the a wall (as shown on the picure below) and take the length to your longest toe. Note the length in millimeter.
When you have chosen a roller skate and opened the product page you'll find a sizing chart on the right hand side and below the product picture under "availability/prices".
Example! This is how the sizing chart can look like:
There you can see the "length" in millimeter. This length refers to your measured foot length. Please don't pay attention on the EU, US or UK sizes. Due to different fits of shoes and roller skates it's quite difficult to choose the correct size with these information.
IMPORTANT: The exact fit of the roller skates also depends on your individual foot structure.
So if you have a normal foot structure, neither very narrow nor very wide, you can go for the exact measured foot length.
But if you have a very wide foot structure you should take one size bigger.
Example: Your measured foot length is exactly 251mm and your foot structure is normal, you should go for S 7.0 on the sizing chart shown above. Because if you are between two sizes you should go for the next bigger size. With very wide wide feet we recommend taking the next size what would be S 7.5 in this case.
These recommendations are made to find the tight but comfortable fit for your roller skates. Since roller skates are sport equipment the correct fit is very important. Please note that due to the huge amount of different foot structures and skate types there will be no guarantee for the perfect fit. But our recommendations refer to our experiences and the experiences of our customers.
